4 Drive In Movie Theaters Close to Boston


Mendon Twin Drive-In

35 Milford Street, Mendon, MA

Why you should go

Now that the Andelman brothers (a.k.a. The Phantom Gourmet) own the place, the food is definitely a big attraction. The Snack Bar is in a retro diner with a working jukebox, original film projector and other memorabilia. Don’t let the snack in the name fool you, you can absolutely get real food too. There’s also a new beer garden where you can watch the movies from the tables. The whole place is super fun and family-friendly. A must visit this summer!

Rustic Tri-Vue Drive In

Route 146, North Smithfield, RI

Why you should go

North of Providence, this theater is one of the closest in proximity to Boston. The authentic 1950s theater usually has a good selection of family-friendly movies as well as more mature flicks. If you’re hungry, pick up a pizza at the snack bar. Or if you’re looking to extend your outing, take a trip to Lincoln Woods State Park for a hike and a swim.
